John Maly, p.5


Maly and Maly’s West played huge roles in the start of the Professional Beauty Association’s annual cash-and-carry Long Beach International Salon and Spa Expo in Southern California. Maly stopped by the 2011 show. “It looks nice, but since the major brands are not there it is no longer an event that the majority of professionals attend,” he states. “I hope that will happen again.”

During 2011, he and Mirabella attended Cosmoprof North America and Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna for international appointments. “It was incredible,” he comments about Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna in Italy. “In our first show, we secured 46 distributor appointments, and will definitely have at least five new distributors by year-end. We will attend again—bigger and better!”

And as for his BIW lunch presentation, he says it was “so fun,” adding, “I always say yes when asked.” Industry event organizers, note: You can reach him at
